Nut Up or Shut Up
 
Nut Up or Shut Up

What injuries or unusual body issues have you trained through or with that might have caused the casual lifter to reach for the couch and grab a binky?

Passed out on a squat set. Rested, drank a protein shake and then completed the session.

Got a shoulder impingement and couldn't press for around a month so I just trained lower body.

There isn't a single day that passes where I don't ache or hurt in a new and interesting way. Training through the minor pains and pushing past the niggles is how we progress.

I squatted in reverse from almost 300lbs back to bodyweight over the course of about 1-2 months. :D Not a good choice. I always have aches and pains, but my inability to accept an injury has kept me, well... injured.

I've trained through rotator cuff issues & bicep tendonitis for several months now. It wasn't until my lower back cried uncle that I took time off to really address the shoulder. When I started getting jolts of pain down the leg I figured I needed to really take a break.

A sprained ankle didn't keep me out of the gym. Upper body wasn't sprained, everyone thought I was crazy, but I was bored not being able to lift.

Got into a minor car crash as a passenger, cracked the windscreen mirror with my forehead. Then proceeded to hit up a Squat PR once I was cleared by the police.

(No-one else was hurt)

Training through a lower back tweak.

I have trained the last 4-5 months with what I believe to be a minor fracture in my collarbone. For the first 3 months I couldn't sleep on my right side.

If 2008 I trained with a torn right shoulder, slowly bringing my bench back up each week as it healed.

I trained about 10 years with horrendous elbow tendinitis.

During my recent powerlifting meet, I threw out my lower back stretching after my first deadlift attempt. I could hardly stand up straight. I told myself to nut up and lift as if my life depended on it.

And I often lift with chafing between my wickets. I'm big, I sweat. I chaff.

Bet that made front squats fun. :)
